After the Volkswagen exposé in 2015 and the Panama Papers scandal, it’s safe to say world needs a more transparent business environment. While thousands of people wake up every day with a brilliant business idea, their plans often miss a solid and profitable financial strategy and efficient cost planning. That’s why IFMC at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) trains you to become the beating heart of any business.
Let’s be clear about it up front. To keep up with the IFMC programme you’ll need to be good at maths. You may have to do a maths exam before applying, if we feel that your secondary school maths grade is not of a high-enough standard. To qualify for the intensive three-year programme, you’ll need a secondary school diploma equivalent to that of a higher level Dutch VWO diploma. Before we can decide on your eligibility, we’ll need to assess your secondary school certificate. To make sure your certificate is evaluated fairly, we work with NUFFIC, an organisation that specialises in the assessment of international education qualification.
Bachelor’s candidates who are educated in the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada (Quebec only when the education language is English), Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Malta, or students holding a diploma (including English as an exam subject) stated on this diploma list, don’t need to take an English proficiency test.
All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, or Cambridge (CAE or CPE) certificate at the Enrolment Centre. The TOEFL, TOEIC and IELTS certificate must not be older than two years at the start of the study year.
See our Language requirements for more information.
Please note: THUAS does not accept Institutional TOEFL scores, TOEFL ITP scores or any other language test certificates.
If you take (or have taken) the TOEFL English proficiency test, please let THUAS check your online results to verify your TOEFL certificate. Our Institution Code is 7042.
If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above, you might still qualify for exemption if:
- you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
- you have an European or International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Please contact the Enrolment Centre and ask for details.
